Freedom (24x36 inches) - Acrylic on canvas
Freedom: exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc.
I've been working on this piece for a while now and it felt good to do something for myself. Sometimes, I have to stop myself from creating things for the sake of what people want to see. This painting reminds me of my piece "Jasmine" (I did a few years back) who was leaving the city life to enjoy the depth of the forrest. This piece is called "Freedom" because it represents my current goals. This year, I decided to use the gusts of wind in life to move me where I would like to be instead of being tossed around by it.
“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.” ― C. JoyBell C.
This is freedom.
